June and Beyond at AAC

June First Friday Art Walk
FREE Community Art Event
June 2 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Featured Photographer: Dan Elster
Show: Eyes of the Wild
Dan Elster was born in Chicago in 1971. In his old life, he was the manager of his brother's food distribution business on the west side of Chicago. Several years ago, Dan and his wife, Patty took a leap of faith.  They quit their jobs, sold their home and hit the road. Patty took a job as a travel nurse, while Dan pursued a dream career in wildlife photography.

Dan's subjects are completely wild, no captive or "staged" shots.  There is something different about wild creatures, you can see it in their eyes.  To them every day is a struggle to survive.  Dan hopes you can see and feel the wild in these photographs.  The hawk's eye is being protected by its nictitating membrane, a secondary translucent eyelid that does not effect the hawks vision.  Great horned owl's eyes are proportionally among the largest of any terrestrial creatures on earth.  Eyesight is critical for the survival of both.
